The Future is

Expand to new chains. Powered by Moonbeam, an Ethereum-compatible smart contract parachain on Polkadot.

Future is Multi-Chain

The Easiest Path to Multi-Chain

Minimal Configuration Changes

No need to rewrite or reconfigure your smart contracts. They'll work right away.

Familiar Smart Contract Languages

Support for Solidity, Vyper, and anything that compiles to EVM bytecode.

Tools You Already Use

Use Ethereum-based tools you love like MetaMask, Remix, Hardhat, Waffle, and Truffle.

Pre-Built Integrations

Built-in integrations for assets like DOT and ERC-20s, and infrastructure services like Chainlink and TheGraph.

A Fully Ethereum-Compatible

Environment on Polkadot

Moonbeam is much more than just an EVM implementation: it’s a highly specialized Layer 1 chain that mirrors Ethereum’s Web3 RPC, accounts, keys, subscriptions, logs, and more. The Moonbeam platform extends the base Ethereum feature set with additional features such as on-chain governance, staking, and cross-chain integrations.

Solidity Smart Contracts

Re-deploy your existing smart contracts to a Polkadot environment without the need to refactor or rewrite.

H160 Accounts & ECDSA Signatures

Interact with Moonbeam using your existing Ethereum accounts and keys.

Publish-Subscribe Capabilities

Subscribe to contract events and updates about on-chain transactions, balances, and more.

Complete Set of Web3 RPC Endpoints

Connect existing tools and dApp front-ends to Moonbeam like you would to Ethereum.

Grow Your Project with Multi-Chain

Moonbeam helps projects expand their reach to new users and markets with a multi-chain approach.

New Users and Use Cases

Address segments of your market that are out of reach on Ethereum due to gas prices.

Rich Pool of Assets

Gain immediate access to DOT, KSM, native Polkadot assets like GLMR and aUSD, plus other bridged assets such as Bitcoin and Ethereum-based ERC-20s.

Growing Ecosystem

Enjoy a “first mover” advantage by deploying early to Polkadot’s rapidly expanding parachain ecosystem.

More Integrations. More Builders. More Deployments.

Neon Glimmer Icon

Smart Contracts, Powered by the Glimmer Token

As a decentralized smart contract platform, Moonbeam requires a utility token to function. Our token, Glimmer (GLMR), is central to the design of the network and can’t be removed without sacrificing security and essential functionality.

The Glimmer token is not yet available. Subscribe to our newsletter to be notified when token distribution plans are announced.

Smart Contract Execution

Glimmer is used to pay for smart contract execution, playing the same role that ETH does on Ethereum.

Transaction Fees

All transaction fees are paid for with Glimmer.


Nominate collators using the Glimmer token and help support the liveness of the network.


Participate in on-chain Glimmer-weighted voting and governance.
